OVERKILL, ONSLAUGHT, UGLY KID JOE, MONSTER MAGNET Featured On 'Snaggletooth: A Tribute To Lemmy'

Metalville Records has released a Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD) tribute album called "Snaggletooth: A Tribute To Lemmy".

This is not just a classic tribute record — bands like OVERKILL, DESTRUCTION, MONSTER MAGNET, UGLY KID JOE, MONSTER MAGNET and ONSLAUGHT are playing their favorite songs. The master himself, Lemmy, is on this record with three tracks — a fine version of one of the greatest QUEEN songs, "Tie Your Mother Down"; "Love Me Forever", a duet with Doro Pesch; and a great rare track, "Rock City Night", that he did with Richard Kruspe from RAMMSTEIN. The tribute also includes exclusive new songs, "Killed By Death" by German rockers KÄRBHOLZ, and "Burner", performed by German thrash heroes PERZONAL WAR. BLACK EXPLOSION from Sweden closes out this extraordinary compilation with "Location 9", inspired by early HAWKWIND days.

Lemmy, who celebrated his 70th birthday last Christmas Eve (December 24), learned two days later that he was afflicted with an aggressive form of cancer. He died two days later, on December 28, at his home in Los Angeles.

The MOTÖRHEAD frontman had dealt with several health issues over the past few years, including heart trouble, forcing him to cut back on his famous smoking and Jack Daniels habits.

The band canceled a number of shows last year, although they did manage to complete one final European tour on December 11, 2015.

In a 2015 interview with Kerrang! magazine, Lemmy was asked how it makes him feel when people call him a legend. He responded: "As long as they don't believe it, that's alright." He continued: "Who wouldn’t want a hero somewhere in their lives? And it might as well be me, 'cause I don't take the piss out of them for it, and I don't laugh at them because of it." But he added, "I'm not a legend. I never thought of myself as being special in particular. Maybe I make brilliant music, but that's about it."
